Women's Chenille Robe
The robe sheds worse than my dog.
The color, size and comfort of the robe are perfect according to my wife who wears it. After five washings (separately) the robe STILL continues to shed. Before the first washing the robe left its mark on everything it came into contact with.

Warm, lightweight, cozy
There is nothing like chenille. I actually bought this for my 15-year-old cat. She has always loved sitting on my lap when I'm wearing a chenille robe. (She's not a chummy cat.) But I had forgotten how soft and warm chenille is. This robe is beautiful. I'm 5'5" and 110 lbs., and the small fits beautifully. The color is outstanding. As long as you know that you must wash and dry this quite a few times before wearing, you will be happy. After the washings and dryings, I put it in the dryer for several hours on air dry, and got even more of the loose chenille off. This is just something you must do with chenille, and it is so worth it. Almost no fuzz boogers left. I am very happy with this robe.

Mom loved this item!
I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my mother. She loves chenille and this robe was a very similar color to one her mom wore for years. After wearing the robe several times, she stated that it was the softest and most comfortable thing she'd worn in years and she was thoroughly enjoying it. Vermont Country Store is the perfect place to look for classic, and often hard to find items and I'll definitely be shopping from them again!

I have been looking for a chenille robe for a few years. The one I had and loved was in a sad state, but I couldn't give it up until I found a replacement. I have seen a few in stores, but the quality was lacking and they were short for me even though I'm only 5'4". Well, when I saw this one, I had to take the chance that it might be good enough. Well, not only is it that, but it's much nicer, heavier, better made and cuter than my old one was when it was new! I'm thrilled with it.

This robe is PERFECT!
It's been next to impossible to find a chenille front-zip robe that had all the attributes I wanted ... at the quality I wanted. I have quite literally been looking for years, and had to settle for a terry wrap in the meantime. I hate wraps, they're a pain in the neck! So the instant I saw this one, I ordered it. It came in the mail yesterday and it meets and EXCEEDS my expectations! So much so, that I just ordered a second one so that, in a few years, when this one begins to show signs of wear, I'll be ready with my new one and won't have to go searching again. Thank you Vermont Country Store!

A beautiful robe...but not for me.
For several years now, I've been searching and looking everywhere for the "perfect" robe to replace my current chenille robe that has seen better days. I'm of average height (5' 6"). I wanted to love this one, but it needs to be about 4 inches longer because my ankles weren't covered and my arms were in an awkward position when I put them in the pockets. It seems like they are placed a bit high...for me anyway.
It's a beautiful color and the quality of the chenille is good.
I am returning this robe and giving up my search. I have purchased a pattern and I will be making my own robe...and make it as long as I want it to be!

Warm Chenille Robe
This robe is heavy chenille and very warm. Exactly what I need in the frozen Pacific Northwest. I've searched the internet and found the perfect robe. I love it.

Fabulous, cozy robe!
I have a chenille robe that is absolutely thread bare and was excited to see this because they are very hard to find. It's the best, most luxurious material for getting out of the shower with (feels like a spa robe) and is a great weight for keeping you warm all winter. The zipper extends to make a really cozy turtleneck and the style is great. Love the detailed pattern on the sleeves which can be cuffed if you have shorter arms. I recommend buying true to size -- the sleeves are set in and it does shrink with washing (normal amount -- no need to size up). I highly recommend this robe -- especially with the winter we are having!
